Former NBA star Ray Allen is currently in the middle of a bizarre legal battle with a man who he alleges fooled him into an online relationship by acting as a woman. The man however says that he’s been in a gay relationship with Allen for three years and now claims that Allen has threatened to kill him to keep their relationship quiet.

TMZ Sports has obtained court documents filed by the man who claims he’s being stalked by Ray Allen — and he believes the NBA star is out to kill him.

In the docs, Coleman claims Allen called him on the phone on Sept. 9 — after their alleged 3-year relationship had ended — and said he wanted to “ensure that I went away and never opened my mouth again.”

“He said he wanted me to get what I deserved.”
Coleman says Allen has “repeatedly spied on me by sending his associates to follow me in my community.” One incident allegedly took place in a Publix market on Oct. 10 where Coleman says a man approached him and told him to “watch your back.”

Coleman also claims he received a phone call from someone threatening to strangle him — and he believes the caller was Ray Allen.

Allen’s attorney, David Markus, fired back at Coleman a “deranged individual” while denying the man’s latest allegations.

“As with everything else related to Briant or Bryant Coleman, his petition for a restraining order was filled with lies, falsehoods and fantasies,” Markus told TMZ. “He is a seriously deranged individual who Ray Allen has never met, never spoken with directly or threatened in any way. Coleman is the stalker here who is obsessed with Ray.”

This story just keeps getting crazier and crazier.
